Unforgettable Things You’d Definitely Miss After Your Graduation



Graduation is the day when every student comes to see his journey of the past few years which he/she spent in their college campus. From the first ever-so-nervous day to the last teary-eyed-nostalgic day of farewell, college is undoubtedly the most memorable part of one’s life.

Since some of have graduated while some will be graduating very soon, let’s take a quick look at what we all are going to miss.


1. Making friends every week and some chit-chats with seniors.

First day at the college where you see some new faces and firstly a small formal talk with someone and then you both becomes BFF. Ragging is actually banned but an intro to seniors is very common and a part of the college life.


2. Having a crush on some girls and hot professors.

There would’ve been a dozen of crushes in college if you were a true engineering student. From Girls to professors, they are best heart-killer in college.


3. Copying boring notes and assignments from the topper’s notebook.

I bet you’ve been through this where no one helped ya but the topper guy’s note saved you. This is one of the worst but still the sweetest.


4. Playing games in the hostel and also during lectures.

Every student who feels bored in the hostel room or in lectures they have the backup and its games such as CS or COD.

5. Hanging out with some mates after bunking classes.

There were days where we didn’t want to attend lectures. And then we bunked with friends to chill out.


6. Fun during college fests

College fests are one of the best painkillers where you get to enjoy a lot. Especially in the concerts and night parties.

7. Larger than life canteen foods.

Have you ever tasted the delicious foods of canteen? Well everyone does but then it forces us to say ‘Taste kaha hai?’

8. Unlimited Wi-Fi

Everyone loves the unlimited wifi given by our colleges. The liberty to download and watch anything you wants to watch.

9. Late night studies

Day before the exam ? Oh shit these nights are scarier than the conjuring because ‘Is me Hum sab ki phat jaati hai’

10. Unofficial college trips with your squad

Trip with your squad is one the best things anyone does. Cause it vanishes away our stress and depression from our mind. And yeah the famous dialogue before the trip ‘Bhai goa chale?’ which apparently never happens!

At last, it would just be perfect to say while graduation that college, you will be missed and all those memories with friends will be cherished all through our lives!

I hope you can relate to the article, share it with friends you are going to miss. For more college-related stuff, follow us on Facebook and Instagram!
